Here's mine. Never would have bought one but it came with the truck when I got it and I never got around to selling it, which is probably for the better. I have a love/hate relationship with it at the moment. On the plus side it keeps my stuff dry and locked up, and its cool to climb inside like a little fort. However, its a huge hindrance to cargo having to enter from the back and crawl inside just to get my stuff. The 30" clearance can be a pain too. Also I'm not too fond of the way it looks. I like pickup truck shape, if I wanted a box I would have gotten an SUV lol. I think it looks better with the rack mounted but I will like it a lot more once I have a place to store it off the truck so I can remove it at will. Outside isn't much but I do like the interior work I've done to it. Need to get some pictures soon. I have shelves running the length of the cap above the windows, LED lighting, gear mounts and a toolbox, and I'm planning on painting or covering the inside (its an ugly off-white plywood texture). Enough words now haha

This is the old setup I had. I removed the big blue box and the ccntents are now stored on the shelves I mentioned. The switch box had a roller switch to trun the light off when the window closed (like the fridge door), but it never worked so I replaced it with a mercury switch. Pics of current setup soon!

Ok got some pictures today of my shell in its current state! Not the best photos but I don't have a whole lot of awesome fields to romp in

First here is the Rhino Rack I installed:





Here is the new inside. Using the bolts hanging down from the rack I added shelves in the upper corners. The contents of my big blue box went up there to make room for cargo on the floor. Couldnt find a place to shove the tarp or blanket but the hammock net works nicely up front.



Got an air mattress, toolbox, drill and power cords, and some tie down gear on this side



Roadside kit, folding chair, outdoor blanket, boombox, bungee cords, fire extinguisher, and another hammock net to use by the taillgate:



Here's a view with the lights turned on:



And the control box. I removed the roller switch and put a mercury switch on the window so that lifting it activates the lights. The two switches on the control box are an override for the mercury switch circuit, to turn off the lights if i have the back open during the day, and a manual switch to turn the lights on from the inside when the window is closed. Also ran duplicate switches underneath the truck and into the cab:



Unfinished switch panel


I still really hate the look of the off white plywood texture and I'm thinking of installing a sort of headliner in the cap just to make it look nice

I thought that I'd have space in my garage to store this cap but it didn't work out - only want to use it at particular times of the year...

Anyone in Southern Ontario want a dark blue cap for $150?
